"...Napoleon opening is a perfectly valid "book opening" but doesn't stick to "develop minor pieces first. With a little digging you can find it played by IMs to shake up GMs."
The problem with this advice is that the OP is not an IM, and he isnt trying to shake up GM's. True, there are worse 2nd moves to make, but it still doesnt follow opening principles. And at the OP's level, principles is what he needs, not shock value.
Your list of "principles" is also very vague and hand wavy. What do you mean by control? How do you develop your minor pieces toward the center? What do you mean by activity? And so on... If you must give advice why not refer the OP to a decent book explaining these principles properly. If there is one.
Do you want someone to move the peices for you too?

No, a database of games is way better.
What's worse than that?
